San Diego was always a favorite tournament stop of the players and always had packed stands. Many tournaments seem to have problems filling seats these days, but that was never an issue with the San Diego tournament. I attended several times, so definitely glad it's back!

Re: Wtf? No LA but San Diego is back instead?

I liked the LA Stadium but San Diego's tennis club/spa is much better

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

San Diego is a much better tournament. Shouldn't have been removed. Ever. Glad it's back.

It's a different tournament now. LA has moved to San Diego, this is not a return of the Acura Classic, so everything will be different still .

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

But the San Diego event will still held at La Costa resort and spa so it basically is the same event. Who cares what the main sponsor is?

How much do you think will be different? It's obviously a different sponsor (Mercury Ins.) and it's under new management, but apparently Raquel Giscafre (the original event owner) is staying on as tournament director. I'm hoping too much won't change...

San Diego was definitely more liked by the players. Better stadium, the Spa, better atmosphere.
